Medical Facts

Post by Holger Laux » Mon 16 Mar, 2020 12:22 am

Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong Province, China)

1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold

2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.

4. A sneezes with it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground.

5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.

6. On fabric it survives 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.

7. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, when you can rub your eyes, nose etc.

8. Can't emphasise enough - drink plenty of water!



THE SYMPTOMS

1. First it infects the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days

2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.

3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.

4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.


(Thanks, Tim, for sharing this.)
